Hi,

in the latest version of Firefox (updated June 2021), the home page had the icons shrink in size considerably.

I'm visually impaired, and this change had made the home page unusable. It's just too hard to see!

Is there a setting to adjust the homepage icons back to their larger size? They used to be 2-3 times the size, and really useful. The boxes the pics are in are still the same, but the icons displayed are tiny now, at least to these tired old eyes.

Thank you in advance! Tony

Your newest download has terribly confused me. I'm not a techie, but a 74 yr. old grandma. Where is the share button. I want to send/forward an e-mail to someone, but I can't find the share button. The e-mail button just has a google account or a yahoo one. I don't use either of them. I'm just terribly lost since the update.

With the new version 89 the row height for bookmarks is way too big and now I am scrolling all over the place. I had them all perfectly spaced to show all in my full screen without scrolling. Is there an adjustment where I can go back to the previous narrower height?

A new version has been released - 89. And the user interface has changed again. And some of the changes are very annoying. I thought I would write a feedback (review). But I found out through google that the feedback page has been down since 2014.

So the question would be where can I leave feedback on one change or another?


I am not an English speaker, so I apologize if there are various errors in the text.

Found a quote here from BILL, right before the thread got closed ofc: "This is not a common problem so I don't know how to fix this apart from what jscher2000 already told you. The only other option I can see is if you uninstall and reinstall firefox and see if the problem still persists."

Actually it is a common problem. Actually there are tons of post asking directly and indirectly how to do this and you keep dodging the question. Each time you focus on the person's problem and provide an amateur fix to their local problem rather than providing a real solution like giving us the freedom specify where we want the output directed. The inet itself is full of ppl asking this question on other sites, and there are several possible solutions. Like using the windows sound settings option which is only available if your windows is up to date. Or an addon if you like sharing some info with a stranger and all his customers. And lets not forget the dude that made his own software and uploaded it to github 5 years ago, that solution certainly sounds secure right? All three, possible solutions to the problem, amateur but possible. Just like its also possible that the devs of FF are amateurs for not being able to provide the obvious solution for over 10 years now, which is to let us specify it... Or is it lazyness thats the problem? Why provide something that someone else has already provided before you in a much worse way than you would right?

Que the "did you try blablabla?", no I didnt and I wont. Oh wait that wont come because you cant answer my question with another question since I didnt tell you my problem. Now answer the simple question. I want to know how I can specify to firefox which audio output to use, not hear your... brilliant and not to say the least super safe work around.

I have a HP office jet 6500 printer. It has been working fine from my Ubuntu Computer using Firefox . Since downloading the latest version of Firefox I cannot connect to the printer and there for cannot print or scan.

The printer is still working normally from a second computer using Windows10.

I have tried re installing the printer but that has made no difference.

I am wondering if the problem could be caused by the Firefox fire wall. Help please. Please note I don't even know enough to be dangerous so any help will need to be extremely basic. I know my name everything else will need to be explained step by step,

Thanks

John

Hi, I'm using the latest firefox version 89.0.2. There's a large tab bar at the top. I never use tabs. Safari doesn't show the tab bar unless multiple tabs are being used. This leaves more space to show webpages. I'd like to hide the tab bar permanently or when only one page/tab is used. I guess that means the red, yellow and green mac circles in the upper left would have to be moved to the lower bar, by shifting the back and forward arrows slightly to the right, as is done on Safari.

I looked online for suggestions. chrome.css files were mentioned. But they didn't explain what those were or how to create/access them. So the guidance was not helpful to those who didn't understand those files, like me.

Can you please let me know how to hide the tab bar?

Based on all the comments I saw on threads, it seems many others think the tab bar wastes space. It would be great if Firefox preferences provided an easy option for hiding the tab bar.

Thanks, Frank
